Uber has launched its bike-sharing service, uberMOTO, in Gurgaon. The goal behind the service is to cut down congestion, a problem that has led city officials to institute "Car-free Tuesdays."
To use the service in Gurgaon, you'll have to navigate to the uberMOTO option, and request a ride. You'll see the driver details once the booking is confirmed, and as required by law, each vehicle will be equipped with two helmets:
uberMOTO works towards the vision of reducing congestion by helping fill every empty seat on the bikes on road. It enables riders to push a button and share a motorbike ride within minutes. It's a great way for people to save time and money on short trips across town and provides last mile connectivity–especially to and from the metro stations.
It will help cut congestion in Gurgaon by getting people out of cars when they don't need to use them, and by encouraging motorbike drivers to share their ride. It follows the launch of Uber's carpooling service, which is designed to get more people into fewer cars.
The service will be available from 7:30AM and 9:30PM, with fares starting from just ₹3/KM. Uber will not collect any service charges for the duration of the pilot test.
